Abstract

The gcpE and lytB gene products control the terminal steps of isoprenoid biosynthesis via the 2-C-methyl-Image -erythritol 4-phosphate pathway in Escherichia coli. In lytB-deficient mutants, a highly immunogenic compound accumulates significantly, compared to wild-type E. coli, but is apparently absent in gcpE-deficient mutants. Here, this compound was purified from E. coli ΔlytB mutants by ...
